A life of Payne

Chapter 37

Katie's POV
*1 Week later*

It has been a week since the Brit awards and around two weeks since I last went to university. Most people would die of boredom being stuck home all day but when you live in such a huge apartment it's not really that bad. The only people I have seen since the Brit awards is Calum, Ashley and of course Liam but mostly Liam. I knew it was time to go back to school but I'm really nervous, I haven't been on twitter or any internet page mainly because I am scared of what people have to say about me at the Brits. I am very self-conscious with myself or what others might think of me so I try not to read stories about myself to much.

I don't get out very much because Liam is so over protective so the media doesn't get much chances to dig at me or my style or hair or anything really. I was almost like a secret celebrity in a way, people would talk about me but never really got the chance to see me. I slightly chuckled at the thought before dragging myself out of bed and towards my walk in closet.

Nothing bad has happened to me since the award show so I took Sophia's threat as just an empty threat and tried my hardest to be happy about going back to school. Well as happy as you can be when you're going back to a place where you have one friend and countless insults being thrown at you every single minute of the day. Wow. When I think of it that way now I don't want to go back.

The sound of knocking on my bedroom door made me jump and quickly rush to finish getting dressed and answer the bedroom door to find a very happy looking Calum and a very nervous looking Liam.

Before I had a chance to say anything, Calum snaked his arms around my waist and picked me up spinning me around resulting in a fit of giggles from me and a very attractive sounding laugh from Calum.

"Okay, okay I think we should let Katie finish getting ready." Liam said as he tried to keep his voice stern but ended up laughing near the end.
"What's wrong with how I look now?" I faked the hurt in my voice but really did want to know what was wrong with how I looked now.
"Have you even brushed your hair yet Katie? It's all curly and fluffy." He sounded so strange trying to talk about hair which made me try and hide my small giggle.
"It's not my fault my hair is naturally wavy not curly. Which is the same as when you grow your hair out. But if it makes you feel any better..." I let my voice trail off as I picked up the comb from my bedside table and ran it through my hair in less than a few seconds. I looked up at Liam and gave him a cheesy grin before pulling on my leather jacket.

"Leather? I think you have been hanging around your brother a bit to much." Calum sneakered at his own joke before he slung his arm over my shoulder.
"What can I say? Living with Liam, it became harder to resist the leather." I smiled at the memory of just a few days ago when Liam convinced me to 'give leather a try'.

"I have something for you." Calum smiled at me before shoving his hand into his pocket and pulling out a necklace with a circle pendant hanging from it. I looked closer to see that on the pendant was the 5 seconds of summer logo.

I blushed slightly as he placed the necklace around my neck carefully before clasping it together at the back. His cold hands lingered on my neck causing goose bumps to rise from his touch.

"Are you trying to turn me into a groupee?" He laughed at my question before answering me.


I happily skipped down the halls of the university, I know it sounds lame but I know now that I'm glad to be back at school because it gives me something to focus on. Not to mention all the nice compliments I have heard people say about me today. Granted most of them were people just saying how nice my dress was that I wore to the Brit awards, not actually about me but that's as close as I get to a compliment around the school halls.

As I was unloading my books into my locker, I heard the intercom system that is set up around the university begin to beep signalling that some annoying voice would be heard through the machine at any minute.

"Would Katie Payne please report to the front office. Katie Payne to front office. Thank you."

Well shit.

I know I missed a bit of school but it's only the beginning of the year and I always did the homework even though I wasn't there so I don't see how I could be in trouble.

After taking a very deep breathe, I shut my locker and turned in the direction of the main office. I half expected to have to push through countless bodies to get there but everyone seemed to move out of my way.

Nearly everyone looked at me like they hoped it was bad news, almost like they were glad to see me leave if it came to that.

I hurt like hell to see people looking at me like that but I kept my cool and continued to make my way to the office.


The head master of the school sat in front of me with his head in his heads while he sighed very loudly.

I have known him quite well since I started this university, he always called me in to ask how I was doing or if I was being given a hard time.
He usually called me in on a Friday to ask how the week went and was usually extremely overly happy but today is a Monday and he doesn't look very happy.

"I really don't know how to tell you this Katie.." His voice trailed off as he kept his head in his hands.

"H-have I done something wrong sir?" I mentally cursed myself for the stutter but I know it happens when I get really upset so I should have seen it coming.

"Katie, uh sweetie. I'm sorry to tell you this but there is nothing at this school that we can offer you any longer." He finally looked up at me and I could almost see the tears building in his eyes even from across the room.

"What a-are you saying?" My throat felt like it was on fire and I could hardly breathe properly.

"You're no longer enrolled with us Katie. I'm sorry but I need you to leave now." He stood up and began to walk towards his office door.

"Wait! You can't just tell me I'm expelled then tell me to leave straight away! What caused this? I'm a straight A student!" I let my anger get the best of me and yelled at him while I stood up but didn't take one step towards the door.

"Miss Payne the less you know about this the safer you are." He became stern all of the sudden which scared the crap out of me so I slowly walked over to the office door without looking up once.

"Kat-" I didn't give him time to finish talking as I slammed his office door in his face. Apparently I don't go to this school anymore so why the fuck should I care about my actions.

I huffed and quickly made my way towards my car trying to ignore all the voices calling out different things to me.

As I started my car in the direction of mine and Liam's apartment there was only one thing on my mind.

This definitely had something to do with Sophia.
